Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:

THE DRESDEN FILES is one of my absolute favorites and I don't wait long to read the installments when they're released, so to say that I was a bit giddy after receiving an ARC from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review would be an understatement.

I settled in as soon as I could with it, and 100 pages in I was already saying: "The brilliance of Jim Butcher & the fantastical world of Harry Dresden never cease to amaze me! 20 pages in I had counted no less than 3 pop culture reference, laughed audibly at least a handful of times, shook my head with wonder & wanted nothing more than to call in sick & read for the next 18+ hours straight"

Upon completion of the book 2 days later, my exact words were: "5 stars isn't nearly enough for a book that had me laughing, crying, gasping, and so much more. And only Jim Butcher could give me 515 pages of so much goodness that it was almost overwhelming, yet leave me desperately wanting more after the last page was turned. Just...wow!"

This release had it all and then some! This review isn't even going to begin to do it justice...

One statement could sum up this book: Harry's back - bigger and better than ever!

The reference humor was stellar, the action, as always, was intense and mystifying, the intrigue and mystery were compelling and gripping and every last page left me wanting more and there were more than enough surprises to go around.

In true Jim Butcher fashion, Cold Days starts quick, builds steadily, grows to an almost combustible crescendo and then closes with a sequence of events that literally had my heart racing and me screaming out loud in outrage, shock, and frustration.

Well over 10 books ago I would have said that I didn't think it could get any better. I'd have been wrong. It has, it does, and I have a feeling it will continue to do so.

LITERAL ADDICTION gives Cold Days a WELL deserved 5 Skulls and strongly urges anyone who hasn't read The Dresden files to start, and soon. This series is epic and will continue to be an easy favorite and an automatic auto-buy for me.

    Not worth it

    Semms more like it was written to speak about modern American political issues than anything else. I read these books for sci fi/action, not to know or care about what the author thinks about political hot topucs (liberal, fyi). Overall, it was more of the same except somehow Dresden gains more power and gets beat up more than ever.

    I'm a dresden fan. I've been hooked since StormFront, and I've read them all religiously.
    I was sort of irate by the Ghost Story ending 'It was all a mind-trick', bwahaha...but let is pass, figuring cold days wouldn't disappoint.
    It did.
    The book starts off great, and I like rehab. I liked the birthday party.
    I liked it right until 'stuff' happened. Ace and Little Folk? When did the winter knight get beat up by just about everyone and their brother? I mean, for having hyped it so much you figured the ride would be a bit more political and a bit less 'getting beat up 90% of the book but winning in the end'. Didn't happen. When Harry is the Winter Knight, apparently the Winter Knight gets beat up. When Lloyd is the winter knight, he's sort of a bad-a**. Disappointed here, Butcher. very disappointed. And don't get get me started on Molly and Karrin. It's past the charming part and getting to the stupid part. How old is Karrin now? 45? 46? And your hero still looks mid-20's. Am I the only one who's noticing the weird dichotomy going on there? It's no longer a storyline, it's now just stupid.

    Honestly love the series but when is it going to end already? Can we please wrap this up soon? Jim, lets be reasonable here. Lets bang this out in two more epic mind blowing books and take a bow. Round of applause. Curtains drawn. Please and Thank you.
